Brewers mentioned with Correia

The latest pitcher to be mentioned alongside the starter-hungry Brewers
is right-hander Kevin Correia of the Padres, who would be a step down
from the other players linked to Milwaukee (Roy Halladay, Jarrod
Washburn among them) but at least could help plug some holes.

Correia
is 7-8 with a 4.75 ERA and would come cheaply, according to the
FOXSports.com blog item that mentioned the Brewers as one of the
interested teams. No deal is imminent, the report said.

The
Brewers’ rotation is a bit of a mess, with Dave Bush (triceps) on the
disabled list and Jeff Suppan (oblique) in limbo for his Saturday start
ahead of a Thursday appointment with the doctor. The Brewers have
already tried Seth McClung and Mike Burns as in-house replacements
before sending them back to the bullpen (now McClung is on the DL with
an elbow injury). The team will give another reliever, Carlos
Villanueva, one more chance to start on Sunday in San Diego.

As
I reported earlier this week, Brewers GM Doug Melvin will be on the
team’s chartered flight to San Diego this afternoon, meaning he’ll be
out of contact with Trade Deadline buzz for a few hours but will be
back in the pocket for the final hours on Friday. The deadline to move
players without exposing them to waivers is July 31 at 3 p.m. CT.
